The Muster on the Wabash
Morning has come to the bluff overlooking the Wabash River near the frontier settlement of Vincennes. The sounds of morning can be heard as the troops begin their day. The coffee pot rattles against tin cups, soldiers are dressing and preparing gear. Another beautiful day is promised for the Muster on the Wabash. You are invited to join the troops, camp followers, craftspeople, and merchants on the site of Fort Knox.
The "Muster," as it is known locally was started during the year 2000. After a decade it continues to grow, to thrill visitors, and to attract reenactors. The event is held at Fort Knox II, located approximately five miles north of Vincennes. The event brings nearly 100 reenactors to tell the story of the American Frontier during the early part of the 1800s. They represent the soldiers, the militia, the families, The merchants, the trades people, and the Native Americans. There are many stories to be told here.
